About Deborah Harland

We are a married couple with children and grandchildren and have bought the apartment for the whole family to use and because we fell in love with Lagos. This is, therefore a special place for all of the family and we, therefore try to keep the apartment spotless for ourselves and for our guests. Because we use the apartment a great deal ourselves we have tried to think of all the little things that make a holiday easy and guests have often said that the apartment is like a home from home. The apartment is best suited for couples of any age.

Deborah Harland purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Deborah Harland chose Lagos

We bought the apartment because we love Portugal, especially the Western Algarve and most of all the town of Lagos. The main reason that we chose this particular apartment was the quality of the construction and the location as we wanted to be able to walk to everything; the marina, the beaches, the town, the shops, bars, and restaurants. We wanted to be able to have a holiday without needing to drive anywhere and we also wanted somewhere with a pool and we wanted an apartment that is on the inside of the complex looking over the pool (not at a road).

What makes this apartment unique

Benefits:

- location, extremely central to everything

- large swimming pool (25m)

- secure on-site, basement parking with an allocated parking spot

- WIFI

- video entry camera by the door

- table-tennis table (below the pool)

- LCD TV and Amazon FireTV Stick for live TV, movies, TV shows etc.

- DVD Player ( & collection of DVDs)

- bookcase with many holiday books

- Speakers (just bring your music player)

- washing machine

- fully equipped kitchen

- dishwasher

- hairdryer

Guestbook comments from the owner

Super apartment, in great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th visit to Lagos and our 3rd staying at this super apartment. The location is fantastic with only a short walk to the Marina and old town. The apartment offers great facilities, and is equipped to a high standard. Supermarkets are only a couple of minutes walk away so you can easily stock up on the essentials for your stay. The welcome pack provided was a lovely touch. We shall be back again in 2018.

Fantastic propertyand perfectly situated

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Lagos and it was a foregone conclusion that we would want to stay in the same apartment. Needless to say that we had the most awesome holiday. The apartment is like a "home from home" with everything catered for; a super view of the pool from the balcony, a brilliant powerful shower and comfy beds. We had the best time ever! It was so lovely to arrive to a homely and spotlessly clean apartment and to be able to have a lovely cuppa when we got there. The complex is so pleasant and quiet and the view over the pool from the balcony was great.

A short stroll (less than five minutes) takes you to the harbour and the old town and the beach is stunning with long golden sand. There is a super market in the area and the large fridge in the apartment is great for storing Superbok beer! We arrived later this year than last and it was amazing to arrive at the apartment to find milk, bread and butter! Fernando’s and Al Forja are great places to eat when in the old town too. Looking forward to returning in 2017!

Good location, clean, comfortable and free wifi

  • 5 of 5

Our fourth stay in this apartment - it is in a perfect location near to the marina, promenade and town. It is clean, well equipped with everything you need and has comfy beds.

We enjoyed having breakfast on the sunny balcony every morning and a glass of wine in the evenings.

There are plenty of cafes and restaurants all a short walk away. We particularly like the ever popular A Forja (Blue door), Reiss, La Floresta and Veneza to name a few. All the staff are very friendly and helpful they also serve great fresh fish.

There is a local fresh produce market near the bus station which is an experience and good value if you are self catering. There is also a supermarket a short walk away.

All in all there is everything you could wish for and if the weather is good it is perfect. We will be going back and I cannot recommend this apartment highly enough.

First class apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for a week in June, the first time we had ever visited Portugal and were very impressed with the location, the apartment was in a quiet residential area but close to the bus station and only 10 mins walk from the wonderful eating places lagos offered. Beautiful beaches within 15 minutes walk and good bus service to Praia de luz and other places and very cheap. The apartment is very secure and has lots of codes needed for access which is very comforting. It is spotless and the beds lovely and comfortable, good storage great kitchen and appliances, TV has plenty of channels and a great iPod for the music we took. Books to read and DVDs are also provided. Everything you could want for a home from home holiday is provided. We really enjoyed it and are looking forward to our return visit next year . Thank you Debbie and Craig for letting us enjoy your holiday home.

Heavenly Home

  • 5 of 5

If you want somewhere that has all the comforts of home, in a quiet location, with all amenities within walking distance and no hills to climb - this is it! We have stayed here 3 times already and are looking forward to returning next year! Breakfast on the sunny balcony overlooking the pool is bliss! The marina, local supermarket and an abundance of places to eat are all within easy reach. If you prefer to eat in the cooking facilities are superb and of course there is also a barbecue! There is underground parking if you hire a car. - what more could you want?

hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for one week in March and loved this little apartment. Spotlessly clean and quiet. Gwen who manages the apartment for the owners is really efficient and arranged to show us how to work the new TV system and when we found the hair-dryer malfunctioned, a brand new one arrived within hours. The location within Lagos is brilliant. Cutting through the bus station, the bridge across the river to the marina and the beach is a few minutes on foot, as is the town centre, supermarket and all the shops. You really don't need a car unless you want to travel outside the town. Would definitely stay here again - thank you Craig

Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

The beaches around Lagos are some of the most beautiful in the Algarve. They all have golden sand (no pebbles), great surf and very unspoiled with no buildings allowed to be built near them. The 4km long Meia Praia beach is 10-15 minutes walk away, as are the many Lagos town beaches. Meia Praia has good sporting facilities and restaurants and is ideal for children due to the calm waters. Praia de Dona Ana, which can be reached after a 25-minute walk from the town centre, is said to be the most photographed beach in the Algarve. There are too many others to mention.

Activities:

You will be spoilt for choice with loads of activities close by.

- Boat Trips: From the marina (5 mins walk) you can book dolphin spotting trips with guaranteed viewing or go on a fishing or grotto trip.

- Waterparks: There are waterparks such as Slide & Splash (30 min drive). Europe's largest water park.

- Zoomarine (40 min drive): is a marine life theme park with an aquarium, dolphin shows, 4D cinema, dolphin interaction and also thrill rides such as the pirate boat and flume ride.

- Walking: There is great coastal walking all around, bike hire and Jeep Safaris.

- Surfing: There are great surfing beaches nearby and a sailing school within walking distance. If you like extreme sports you can book sky diving, kite surfing, windsurfing, downhill mountain biking, kayaking.

- Historic day trips (Silves, Seville, Lisbon) can also be booked, although a lot is already on your doorstep in Lagos. The Lagos coach and train stations are both an easy walk from apartment.

Travel:

Faro airport is a 50 minutes drive (by motorway) and you can hire a taxi or a shuttle. Car hire whilst staying at our apartment is not essential as you will be within easy walking distance to the Marina, the town, and the many beaches. Lagos train station is a 5-minute walk and Lagos bus station is even nearer, a mere 2-minute walk.

Distances:

50 miles from Faro and 114 miles from Lisbon. 150 miles to Seville.

Shopping:

There are 2 supermarkets within a few minutes walking distance of the apartment.

Bars and restaurants:

The many bars and restaurants of Lagos town (more than 350) are within easy walking distance

Further Details:

Lagos is widely reported as the most attractive town on the Algarve. It has avoided the worst elements of modern tourism and instead has chosen to develop its tourism with taste and class. There is a good balance between the modern Marina and associated boat, trips, fishing and dolphin spotting activities and the charm and history of the Old Portuguese town. The town center is a rambling maze of interlinking cobbled streets, with beautiful shops, restaurants, and bars but also fine old architecture and churches. At night throughout the summer there are artists and performance artists and live bands during festivals (which are frequent). The atmosphere is exciting but very safe. Lagos is particularly known for its fine and wide range of restaurants from Portuguese (obviously) to French, Italian, Thai, Indian, Japanese, Tapas, Chinese ... the list is endless and the quality excellent. But if you want to self cater there are good supermarkets within 5 minutes walk, a local fish and vegetable market and all within easy reach by foot. There is even a pull-along trolley bag in the apartment to make you feel at home.
